Translating Evidence to Practice in Public Health Intern (2013)

This TEP-PH Internship experience is a great way to learn more about public health in Wisconsin. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with pharmacists, university professors, and other pharmacy students.

Ivana has recently started her internship in Translating Evidence to Practice in Public Health (TEP-PH) at the Wisconsin Public Health Practice Based Research Network (WPHPBRN). Ivana is pleased to join the WPHPBRN team. Her first day was June 17, 2013.

Ivana is interested in learning more about public health in Wisconsin. She has begun working with Dr. Julie Willems Van Dijk to begin translation of the study, “A Quality Analysis of Wisconsin’s Community Health Improvement Plans and Processes.” In addition, Ivana would like to learn more about the interaction of pharmacists with local and state health departments and public health systems. She believes that there is great potential for pharmacists to increase their involvement and utilize their skills especially in the areas of community wellness, emergency preparedness, and immunizations.

Ivana has worked in health care since 2009. She has worked at Saint Lukes Medical Center, Milwaukee in the Abdominal Transplant and Renal Unit where she focused on pre and post care for kidney, liver and pancreas transplant patients. Ivana currently works as a Certified Pharmacy Technician/Student Intern with Walgreens pharmacies in Madison and West Allis, Wisconsin.

Ivana received a B.S. in Nursing from Alverno College, Milwaukee where she received the Mary Ann and Charles LaBahn Endowed Scholarship and Alverno College Academic Scholarship. She was also a Medical/Surgical Nursing Intern at Froedtert Hospital, Milwaukee. Ivana is currently pursuing the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
